Harold Peters: Lean Deployment Strategy and success stories

Harold Peters is the System Director of Performance Improvement, and is responsible for the approach, structure, and standards that support PeaceHealth’s operational improvements. He leads a team of community-located improvement resources who support improvements in access, throughput, reliability, cost, and efficiency across the organization’s 3 states, 10 hospitals, 70 clinics, 900 providers and 16,000 caregivers. 

Harold is a professional electrical engineer and his initial exposure to work improvement was in various positions with an electrical equipment manufacturer. In increasingly responsible roles, he implemented just-in-time manufacturing, discrete-event-simulation production planning, and designed a greenfield Lean facility with a process-oriented organizational model. In addition to managing operations, he was also responsible for information technology, which included early adoption of PC networks, automated software design systems, and an integrated design and enterprise-resource-planning system. 

Since joining PeaceHealth in 2004, Harold has contributed to a numerous improvement initiatives including: clinical workflow designs, pharmacy redesign and reliability, ED safety and throughput, physician practice redesign, continuous improvement training, and facility design. He introduced queuing theory, software modeling and simulation, and developed those into a Management Engineering team. In PeaceHealth’s transition from a holding to operating company, he led the transition to a single improvement vision, strategy, and structure. Recently, he directed a three-year system-wide deployment of a Lean Daily Management System, which now involves approximately 400 units and 14,000 caregivers.
